Spear + Giant mass is defeated by sword & albow mass.

okay, but you could use the giants on the albow, while using spear on sword ( seems obvious, but it's the only possibility) so that the albows die somewhat quickly, granting the giants ability to help with the spears.

Edit: plus a medic will be used

Well, you're assuming infinite time and resources. The sword + albow build gets completed a lot faster than spear + giant.

Swordwraths take a long time to build. 80 swordwraths take 16 minutes to build. 11 giants take 7 minutes 20 seconds to build.

Again, your assuming perfect condition, endless gold, etc. In a real game he would have 4 swordwraths out before you can even get a spearton, and way more than enough to kill giants. Plus, swords in front of giants can effectively block all boulders hurled at air units.

I'm just taking down to the simplicities, basically, when you have filled your population limit on both sides (not including miners)

But that should never happen. That's the whole point of early eco harassment.

It's a wierd hypothetical statement, so it's not likely it would happen in the way I stated it, it's just hypothetical.

Actually, the real threat to spear plus giant rush is that you get the tower, use tower spawn, outnumber his spears with alot of spears and archers, attack at start and kill most of his miners or you can damage his spears cuz they take long time to heal, and if he starts making giants, you should have a magikill out and 2 merics too

again, the odd hypothetical to put some variables to a constant, the 'perfect economy' so I'm just talking about the combat that doesn't involve miners
